Ithaca Trainer: What I’m Reading Wednesday

Lots of good stuff this week!

This quick tip comes from the “Glute Guy”, and is an awesome upper body stretch.  Even if you spend 1-2 hours in the gym working out and doing mobility drills, it’s hard to offset sitting behind a desk for 8-10 hours a day.  You should try to get up and do this stretch as much as possible.  You might look a bit odd, but I find a candy dish usually helps smooths things over with coworkers.

Speaking of mobility work!  With the Northeast’s OCR (as well as Tri/Road Racing I assume) season wrapping up in the next 4-8 weeks, we are all bound to have a few nagging issues.  If you’re dealing with an IT Band struggle and have been foam rolling to no avail, check this out:

I’m a big number person.  I love being to take 2 seconds of my lap time, fit 130 grams of protein into my day and get 8 hours of sleep.  I know that life isn’t just a numbers game, but a balancing act among many other forces.  If emotional eating is (or could be) throwing off your diet… check this out.  You are in control and you can do this.

 

Just a fun list of motivational tips/ reasons to work out.  I like 14, 29, 31, 43, 46 (and most pain, when done properly), and 50. Which ones do you like?
